Slide1:

JAPAN Rain, Snow & Art

Slide2:

Seasons are a main theme in the Japanese culture. Flowers are like mirrors to the seasons, reflecting the passage of time. Fittingly, flower viewing is a very popular activity in Japan as most prominently seen in the annual festivities surrounding the cherry blossoms, but not limited to them

Slide4:

From the end of May through early July, Japan experiences weeks and weeks of rain as if a monsoon season has arrived. Unlike the beating rainfall of monsoon, however, the rain this season is softer and neverending. A bed of vivid purple flowers in such gloomy and silent background is truly breathtaking. These flowers known by the name of iris in English is called ayame in Japanese. Ayame and kakitsubata, another flower which belongs to the same iridaceae and has a hardly different appearance that there is even a saying (or a song), "in the end, either ayame or kakitsubata." It describes well the grace of both these flowers, and thus means to be divided between two or more incomparable things or people

Slide5:

From the end of May through early July, Japan experiences Hanakotoba is the Japanese form of the language of flowers. In this practice, plants were given codes and passwords.

The iris has captivated the hearts of the Japanese since ancient times. Kakitsubata, a native species of iris, became especially popular from a story in the tenth century, “Tales of Ise.” An aristocratic poet, weary of the fashionable life in Kyoto, set out on a long journey. Arriving at Yatsuhashi (meaning “eight bridges”), he saw irises in full bloom in a marsh crisscrossed with the eight bridges that gave the area its name Japanese wrapping cloth Furoshiki
